Victoria uses three types of management zones to protect its grape industries from phylloxera:
Victoria PEZ Order
Current PIZ (maps):
A single Order applies to the declaration of these PIZs.
The whole community can help prevent the spread of phylloxera by being aware of these phylloxera management zones and what they mean.
When travelling by road, observe highway signage and do not move any phylloxera host materials into the Phylloxera Exclusion Zone (PEZ) without appropriate certification.
When visiting vineyards in a Phylloxera Infested Zone (PIZ) observe signage regarding movement around the vineyard (photo below) and do not remove any phylloxera host materials from the property.
Report any unauthorised removal of host materials from phylloxera zones to Agriculture Victoria’s Customer Service Centre on 13 61 86.
Go to Agriculture Victoria’s interactive application to find out which zone you’re in.
The Phylloxera and Grape Industry Board of South Australia publishes maps of the phylloxera management zones of Australia.
The management guidelines presented here are based on protocols produced by the Phylloxera and Grape Industry Board of South Australia, September 2006, the National Phylloxera Management Protocols, October 2009, and Agriculture Victoria regulations.
